Things I Dig

I thought I would do a review on some adult stuff that I am digging right now.

I am big on the white jeans, capris and bermudas during summer.  I do NOT wear shorty shorts, the combo of pasty legs and age have propelled me into the more sophisticated arena of white longish bottoms to make me look less pale and scary. White jeans need a break every once in awhile so I purchased these jeans.  You have to walk a fine line when buying light jeans but these are super soft and looking hip 70s style or I am lying to myself as they are currently on sale.



I am on a diet for the 47,000th time and it is hard because I LOVE to eat SUGAR.  I love sugar so much that I would marry it.  But instead I nibble on my salt free rices cakes.  I really like them and they curb the dieting rage that I feel constantly.  You should try them again as they taste like nothing but you are eating.  They eat like a super awesome cracker while I'm working. MMMMMMmmmmmm.  You pair it with a Perrier and that is some fun.

I wouldn't have to diet if it wasn't for this crazy place where it is STRAWBERRY month.  I love white cake with strawberries and they have cupcakes with strawberries in them.  WAHHHHHHH.














Ok, back on track for reviews.  I am not a big make-up person and I can't even paint my own toenails much less fingernails so it has to be quick and easy.  I found the Vincent Longo water canvas foundation to be pretty amazing.  I was wondering around Bloomingdale's and a lady sat me down and tried it on me and I really liked it.  I wore no makeup when I wasn't working so I needed something fresh and new.  I was sad to discover that it was $56 for a small container so I am searching for something else that is similar and cheaper.

I dig these sandals, I bought a pair in Spring and have worn the heck out of them.  They are super comfy, look cute and the flower distracts from longish toes or old pedicures.  LO vomited all over them last night but I had been thinking ahead and had ordered a second pair for next Summer!  Endless.com is a great place to buy shoes as they usually have a coupon on retailmenot.com, free overnight shipping and you can use your Amazon login.

I bought this book a few weeks ago and I have really enjoyed looking through it for ideas on vacations with LO.  There is so much fun stuff to do before they are teens and don't want to hang with you anymore.
